in place. jon: thank you. jane: ted kennedy served in the senate for nearly 50 years. harry reid this morning said it was a thrill of a lifetime to work assigned him. he added -- john, senator kennedy ran for president back in 1980 when he challenged then sitting president jimmy carter for the democratic nomination. today, he was among the many to pay tribute to the late senator. >> his first commitment was always to the people who were most in need, and he worked for those who were deprived and society. not only for them, but he was very effective in his legislation. he was dedicated. jon: he added, he does not think there is anybody who served in the congress right now who would be served asked -- who would be missed as much as ted kennedy. jane: in 2004, kennedy changed state laws, keeping john kerry in office. days before his death, he urged senators to go back to the old method. he said it was vital to have two senators serving during this health care debate. friends and colleagues are remembering him across the country. coming up, we will speak to a friend. jon: say goodbye
